So this is what I spent my time doing last night. Not very often I make this kind of thing. But the last drawing sort of sparked this idea that wouldn’t leave my head. So I drew it. >>; If it’s not your cup of tea, I understand. But when you gotta draw…ya gotta draw.
At this point I’m really hoping @therealjacksepticeye will see this because I am so proud of it. If anything, I hope the community enjoys it as much as I had fun making it. =)
A majority of us may slip into our little space in public if we see something that our little selves like! We don’t want you to get angry with us by that or have you tell us to grow up. If it’s an inappropriate time, just pull us to the side and explain it nicely! ❤
“Go to Bible School to Get a Husband,” and other things you shouldn’t tell little girls
“Go to Bible School to get a husband.”
→ How about, “Go to Bible School to deepen your relationship with Christ?” → Why not, “Go to Bible School to explore intellectually what you have felt emotionally/spiritually?” → What if we said, “Go to Bible School to seek out God’s leading and calling on your life?”
2. “Be careful not to cause your brothers in Christ to stumble.” → How about, “Be careful to surround yourself with men/women who build you up and don’t tear you down.” → Why not, “Watch out for the men/women who view your virginity as the validity for you to be a part of the body of Christ.” → What if we said, “Protect yourself from men/women who blame their lust on your body.”
3. “It’s okay, Jesus is your boyfriend.” → How about, “You don’t need a boyfriend to make you valuable to the Kingdom of God.” → Why not, “Look for your worth in God’s love for you vs. finding your worth in the love and acceptance of a significant other.” → What if we said, “You are still living in relationship, even if you are ‘single’. You are in relationship with God, yourself, and the people around you. Romantic relationships do not trump the importance of these relationships.”
4. “Guard your heart.” → How about, “It’s okay to be soft. Do not fear your own tenderness, God has not given you a spirit of fear.” → Why not, “It’s not your fault. Guarding your heart doesn’t always save you from bad stuff happening.” → What if we said, “We all make mistakes, it’s okay to feel this hurt, God is with you in this hurt.”
5. “Wait for the man you will marry.” → How about, “It’s okay to hold off on sexual activity, but don’t hold off on living your life before you (potentially) meet the man of your dreams.” → Why not, “There’s more to focus on than waiting for a future mate.” → What if we said, “God has good work for you to do now that you can’t wait on.”
I’ve been noticing a big thing in how my brain works. I don’t know how to describe it without an example, but it’s really odd and I don’t quite understand it.
I came up with the idea that I wanted to make a half circle skirt, right? I thought of the process of making the skirt; digging through my fabric, laying it on the floor, taking measurements, drawing out the pattern, cutting it out, sewing it up, inserting the zipper, hemming it… Then I thought about how this process was messy and usually took a considerable amount of space. Then I started thinking of how messy my room was. I decided that before I could start working on a skirt, I needed to clean my room. But some stuff I can’t clean up; I have a couple of piles of fabric that I can no longer fit into my storage bin. They can’t be put away until I can get a new storage shelf. So I started looking at shelves online. I got sidetracked by something else and dropped the whole thing for a while. Eventually, though, I stumbled upon the topic in my head and thought my way through the whole process again. This time, instead of being hung up on the fabric piles, I got stuck on the unfinished sewing project sitting on my ironing board. It takes up a lot of space on there, and if I were to sew a skirt, I would need to find a new temporary home for it, making what I perceived to be an even bigger mess. I decided that I should finish that and put it away before starting on the skirt; problem, the pattern instructions are confusing and I don’t know how to proceed with making it. This led me to feel awful about how I couldn’t finish the project. It brought me to the conclusion that A. I suck to some degree, and B. I cannot sew the skirt that I wanted.
So, long story short, my train of thought just keeps on chugging until it finds something vaguely related that is somewhat negative and inhibits me from carrying out the task that I want to do. …Is that an autism thing? Does it occur in other stuff, like OCD or ADD?? I’ve really been noticing it lately, and it’s super frustrating… Thoughts?
